Power efficiency up to 100 MHz enables embedded designers with
uncompromised performance and power consumption
NUREMBURG, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 23, 2016--
NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ: NXPI) today introduced its
next-generation family of low-power, multi-market MCUs – the LPC5411x.
With today’s introduction, NXP extends its LPC54000 series of MCUs with
improved power efficiency, a host of serial peripherals, flexible
run-modes, autonomous operations when the CPU is not active and
voice-detection DSP hardware.
The LPC5411x MCU family finds the right balance between power efficiency
and feature integration for consumer and industrial applications that
require low-power, always-on processing. This includes applications in
gaming, USB accessories, healthcare devices, patient monitoring, IoT, as
well as building automation. LPC5411x MCUs feature the ARM® Cortex®-M4,
which has an active mode current of 80 µA/MHz. With an industry-leading
dual-core option, the LPC5411x MCU can shut down the Cortex®-M4 for a
tiered power approach and use the Cortex®-M0+ to perform less taxing
tasks, achieving an even lower active mode of 60 µA/MHz.
The family includes up to 256KB of Flash and 192KB of SRAM. This large
amount of SRAM provides designers with ample space for stacks or data
buffering as well as running large programs in SRAM to save power even
further. The dedicated on-chip DMIC subsystem dramatically reduces power
required for voice input and processing, achieving the stringent power
efficiencies required to support always-on features in battery operated
products. The LPC5411x family does not compromise fast wake-up time to
achieve low power. It can wake up from all power-down modes quickly and
starts processing immediately.
Other embedded features include crystal-less full speed USB, a 5 Msps
12-bit 12-channel ADC, CRC engine, 8 serial communication blocks (each
configurable as an USART, SPI or I2C), two I2S and a single-cycle
multiplier for the Cortex-M0+.
“The LPC5411x's power efficiency holds enormous potential to drive
innovation in products that require more performance for the gaming,
healthcare, and consumer industries,” said Geoff Lees, vice president
and general manager of microcontrollers at NXP Semiconductors. “The
LPC54000 series is just the start of a long roadmap of industry
disrupting power-efficient innovations customers can expect from the LPC
NXP will demonstrate the power efficiency improvement made to its
Cortex-M4 based LPC5411x family of MCUs in a display created in
partnership with Malaspina Labs and Sensory. The LPC54114 audio and
voice recognition kit and demonstration is part of the 2016 Smarter
World Tour across Europe and highlights power efficiency and the ease of
use when designing voice recognition applications. You will find the
Smarter World Truck parked in the NXP booth (Hall 4A / Booth 220) at the
Embedded World 2016 show in Nuremburg, Germany, February 23 - 25, 2016.
The LPC5411x family will be available in the lead LQFP64 (10 x 10 mm)
package, as well as a WLCSP49 (3.4 x 3.4 mm). Limited samples
available now; with lead package production targeted for May 2016.
Suggested resale starting at USD $2.36 in 10K quantities.
LPCXpresso54114 evaluation board (OM13089), as well as the LPC54114
Audio and Voice Recognition Development Kit (OM13090) which includes
the standard evaluation board plus a digital microphone and display
shield, are both available today in limited quantities.
